Critic Reviews for The Tollbooth

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (7)

Lack of perspective and shaky comic tone plague Tollbooth -- Debra Kirschner's DV-shot saga of a Brooklyn Jewish girl trying to make it in Manhattan as an artist -- sinking it in a morass of whiny cliches.

Watching its roster of decent actors struggling to overcome the banalities of their roles makes the price of getting through The Tollbooth very high indeed.

Plays like the unholy spawn of Brighton Beach Memoirs and Fiddler on the Roof.

In The Tollbooth, 22-year-old Sarabeth Cohen (Marla Sokoloff), a self-described 'feminist artist,' talks us through the travails of her Jewish-American family and her own coming of age.

Women may recognize with shivers the struggles of twentysomething Sarabeth in The Tollbooth. And that's a bad thing.

South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Ambling but never less than endearing.

In short, this film ain't kosher.
